Summer Intern Program

YEAR 2 of SUMMER URBAN INTERNSHIP applicants wanted!

Be a part of a summer of justice and ministry doing an internship in the Urban Los Angeles area! Here's the description:

The United Methodist Urban Internship is an eight and a half week summer experience for college students who wish to explore living and working in faith-affiliated summer programs in Los Angeles' urban core. Interns meet individually weekly with a spiritual mentor, and weekly with the program coordinator to reflect on their experience in the program, and to process and discern a calling to service and/or ministry in poor, urban areas of the city. Interns are provided a room, and live together in cooperative community at Orchard House near USC, which is provided by the United Methodist Cal-Pac Conference. Meals are planned communally, and transportation via public transit is provided.

One highlight of the program is the very real contribution that interns make to their work-sites. This year's work-sites include Peace Camp at United University Church; the Museum of Social Justice, affiliated with La Plaza United Methodist Church; and the Urban Foundation and Kid City, affiliated with First United Methodist Church of Los Angeles. We are hoping to be able to offer more sites and will update this page as they are confirmed. One important aspect of the intern experience is to share their work with the church congregation, and to provide a bridge for the congregation to support and participate in the work at the work-site.

It is our hope that through this internship experience, participants will consider if they are called to work in urban communities, whether in ministry or in some other aspect of service.
